You Will Need
1 pound ground beef
1/2 cup chili sauce
1 envelope onion soup mix
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 to 2 tablespoons sesame seeds, optional
1-1/4 teaspoons salt
1 cup shortening
3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
3/4 cup evaporated milk
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
What to Do
1. In a skillet, over medium heat, cook beef until
no longer pink; drain. Stir in chili sauce, soup mix
and salt; set aside.
2. In a bowl, combine flour, sesame seeds if desired
and salt. Cut in shortening and cheese until
crumbly. Combine milk and vinegar; gradually add to
flour mixture, tossing with a fork until dough
forms a ball. Divide dough in half; roll out to
1/8-in. thickness. Cut with a 2-1/2-in. round cutter.
3. Place half of the circles 2 in. apart on
ungreased baking sheets. Top each with about 1-1/2
tablespoons of beef mixture; cover with remaining
circles. Moisten edges with water and press with
a fork to seal. Cut a slit in the top of each. Bake
at 425°F for 12-16 minutes or until golden brown.
Serve immediately; or cool, wrap and freeze for up
to 3 months.
